September EtsyFAST Challenge

Finally the EtsyFAST challenge for September items have been listed. It takes only a few days to finish a project, it is the listing that has been taking a while. I have yet to figure out why. :) Something I'll have to work on, I guess.

One set was an order, the second set is in a gallery, and this set is now available on Etsy.
In other news some more shibori scarves are ready to go for the fall 2007 season and will be in one of the boutiques by October. They have been a lot of fun and although they are a little more work than a regular scarf. I have some serious plans for this upcoming line.
The next issue of Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio Newsletter will be available soon!!!

Oooh, the shibori scarf is *gorgeous*. I've always wanted to give that a try, but I'm a little chicken. :) Very inspiring. (Love the towels, too!)

Your weaving is lovely. I've done a lot of dishtowels, but have yet to try waffle weave. I need to add that to my "do soon" list. I'm just surfing WeaveRing and couldn't help but stop to comment.

The First Two Twills

For the first scarf, I chose a blue weft and the contrast in color with the burgundy warp is just wonderful.  At different angles, you can see that there is a lot of movement and once it's off the loom and wet finished, it should have an iridescent quality that tencel is almost always known for. 



     For the second scarf, I chose a red-violet weft also in tencel.  The final product will be less dramatic than the first for a more subtle look.  The broken twill pattern is slight breaking the movement in the overall pattern in rectangular blocks.



Now back to the drawing table for two more designs :)

The Second Two Twills

The last two scarves are plaited twills.  I started with a silver weft and a strange thing started happening again.  I'm getting little lines of fuzz as I weave on the right hand side of the fabric.  I'm assuming that the reed is doing this and I can't seem to figure out why.  When I wet finish the fabric, the fuzz goes away but I can't seem to figure out why it's happening.  Perhaps it's my beat.



     The last scarf is also a plaited twill this time done in a light sunny yellow for a nice contrast.



Finally...twisting the fringe!


My next project will be another straight draw and I'll probably design in the lift plan to get some more detailed imagery. 

Americana Chenille Scarves on Memorial Day

Still working through the stash of yarn that I already have, I've decided on a run of chenille scarves in red, white and blue!

There is so much to work through in my stash and at the rate I'm going, I may never have to buy yarn again!

I took pictures indoors on a dreary day so the colors don't pop like they would in natural sunlight but you get the idea.  I went with a classic plaid for two and a plain creamy white for the weft in the third.

This was a quick easy plain weave...just trying to cut down the stash!


The weather has finally broken!  An extra month of Winter was a little too much for me so, when I'm not home when I should be home, it's on the trail I am.  Lush green leaves are finally here :)
